good morning, america. donald trump unplugged. the gop nominee says the shackles are off. blasts house speaker paul ryan and his fellow republicans. >> i wouldn't want to be in a foxhole with a lot of these people. >> and trump's scathing new ad questioning hillary clinton's health now on the air. mystery plane crash. the fbi now investigating whether this deadly accident was intentional. a passenger was killed. the street up in flames. what the pilot is revealing this morning. new trouble for jim carrey. the comedian under fire. now being sued by his ex-girlfriend's mother. her explosive claims about the actor. was he responsible for her daughter's death? and the chicago cubs are moving on to the national
championship series. >> and overnight, the cubs' big comeback. chicago rallying in the bottom of the ninth for a giant win. now perhaps on their way to making history. can they break a century-old curse? ♪ good morning, america. is the curse about to end? that is the big question this morning after the cubs beat the san francisco giants advancing to the national league championship series. >> uh-huh. >> it was a very intense nail-biting ninth inning that went down to the wire but the cubs, they are celebrating the big win. they've got a long way to go to overcome that so-called curse of the billy goat. >> we will talk about that more later. first, the race for the white house just 27 days until the election. donald trump lashing out at his own party's leaders saying, the
shackles are off. that tweet part of a day-long tirade. he fired off at least ten attacks. trump's campaign manager, kellyanne, c conway, is here standing by live to talk to george. we'll hear from her in a moment. >> first, let's go to abc's tom llamas at trump tower. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. campaign sources say those tweets and clashes with paul ryan are all part of the same strategy. donald trump wants to make sure voters know that he's not beholden to anyone, even the leaders of his own party. this morning, donald trump in an all-out war with fellow republican and house speaker, paul ryan. >> i wouldn't want to be in a foxhole with a lot of these people, that i can tell you. >> but mccain is a brave man. >> including ryan. >> he is a brave man. >> by the way, including ryan, especially ryan. >> i got that. >> reporter: the republican nominee furious ryan told house republicans he would no longer defend him or campaign for him. and trump saying ryan, in part, inspired this tweet. it's so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and i can now fight for america the way i want to. >> the shackles are some of the establishment people that are weak and ineffective people
within the republican party, senators and others and paul ryan led to a certain extent by paul ryan. >> they were holding you back? >> to be the nominee. >> reporter: ryan's split with trump comes after that "access hollywood" video surfaced. trump on a bus bragging his celebrity status allows him to grope women. >> when you're a star they let you do it. you can do anything. >> whatever you want. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. you can do anything. >> reporter: and though trump apologized for his comments, he's suggesting the controversy has been overblown. >> well, first of all, locker room talk and most have heard it before, i have had a lot of women come up to me and say, boy, i have heard that and i have heard a lot worse in my life. >> reporter: trump fully aware that moment could have cost him the election. >> if that's what it's going to take to lose an election that would be pretty sad. >> reporter:
his campaign now releasing this vicious ad attacking hillary clinton's health. >> hillary clinton failed every single time as secretary of state. now she wants to be president. hillary clinton doesn't have the
fortitude, strength or stamina to lead in our world. >> reporter: the ad intended to slow clinton's growing lead in the polls. trump's running mate having to calm some supporters who were making threats if clinton wins. >> if hillary clinton gets in, i myself i'm ready for a revolution because we can't have her in. >> yeah, don't say that. >> but i'm just saying. >> there's a revolution coming on november the
8th. i promise you. >> reporter: now to give you a sense of the fracture between donald trump and his own party, "usa today" is out with a story this morning that shows a quarter of all republican governors, senators and house members will not be voting for trump on election day. the paper calling this unprecedented in american political history, george. >> okay, tom llamas, thanks very much. now let's talk to kellyanne conway, donald trump's campaign manager. thanks for coming back to "gma" this morning. you heard tom at the top saying this is the strategy now of mr. trump to take on his own party. how is that going to help you win? >> well, it's going to help him just take his message directly to the voters, george. i mean, we have been playing very nicely with members of the
party. the rnc us and have a wonderful relationship. i talk to reince priebus several times a day and his chief of staff and chief strategist are in our tower most days. and i'm happy they've provided so much of the basis for our ground game and field staff, so and i just want to say when we pay, when donald trump raises money like he did, millions and millions of dollars yesterday in fund-raisers, a lot of that goes to the party and helps his down-ballot candidates. >> as tom said you've gotten a quarter of senator, members of congress, senator, not supporting donald trump. last night he said he doesn't want the support of house speaker, paul ryan, yet earlier in the day, he said he was losing because he didn't have the support. so which is it? >> we want the support of anyone who is willing to campaign for us. but enough of the pussyfooting around in terms of do you support us, do you not support us? the fashion is that -- fact is that some of these leaders have been wishy-washy and paul ryan has a job to do and the new president of the united states will go ahead and
be with him, you know, to help get legislation through. at the same time -- >> does mr. trump want paul ryan to be the speaker if he's elected? >> that's up to the members of the congress. i hope it means we have a majority in the house, the senate and the presidency. because that exhale would be the best indication that americans voting for donald trump for wout indication that americans voting for donald trump f would be the indication that americans voting for donald trump fa would be tht indication that americans voting for donald trump fc would be th best indication that americans voting for donald trump ftu wou best indication that americans voting for donald trump fa woul best indication that americans voting for donald trump fl woule best indication that americans voting for donald trump fl woul the best indication that americans voting for donald trump fy would be the best indication that americans voting for donald trump for president also want a mandate for him to push through different pieces of legislation. >> it's not looking like that right now. the latest polls have you down about nine points. falling behind in the electoral college as well and we just saw that ad that you are playing now showing hillary clinton coughing and her stumble after that 9/11 ceremony. you've got a huge gap with women right now. how are you going to be able to make that up running ads like that? >> we need to take the message directly to them on issues they care about like education and
obamacare. >> her coughing and stumbling? >> we're calling into question her record as secretary of state and, frankly, that ad we're releasing today is called "corruption," and takes into account the fact that the clintons came out of the white house and said they were dead broke, and made a quarter of a billion dollars in speaking fees -- >> right there you're making fun of her health. >> no, we're calling into her question whether she's got the stamina to lead. i think that's an important issue that came up in the first debate. >> in the second debate mr. trump said she always gets right back up. >> she does, and thank god, and when she fell that day, mr. trump said nothing about it except he hopes she was feeling well. we all did, and we're glad to hear she is running a clean bill of health. >> now you're running an ad? >> george, what does she do every single day? all she does is call him names and all she does is call into his question his character and we want this election to be not just about character but also about issues. nobody -- abc did an unbelievable report last night, i hope everyone will see it about friends of bill getting preference by the state department after the earthquake in haiti in 2010. this is not the way that the government should be run. >> i want to go back to another moment in the debate. the other night. mr. trump's threat to jail hillary clinton. you dismissed that as a
yet he's repeated it on the stump several times and he has called for a special prosecutor, and even trump's allies say that shouldn't be the language we should have. michael mukasey says, "this would be like a banana republic. putting political opponents in jail for offenses committed. and they very well may be, is something we don't do here." >> he's channelling the frustrations of millions of americans and hears from his rallies and otherwise. he feels there's a different set of rules. for hillary clinton. >> he's threatening to use the power of the presidency to put her in jail. >> it wouldn't be up to him. it would have to be adjudicated. through the regular channels just like anyone else. but, george, people feel frustrated there's a different set of rules for hillary clinton. >> he is calling for a special prosecutor. >> we'll have to see if he's elected president if that makes any sense but folks get upset we've got a gentleman an american who took pictures inside a submarine who got jail time away from his child, and
other people seen as violating the confidentially of a national security document, they also face penalty and in this case fbi director jim comey did make clear that she lied about how many servers she had -- >> no reasonable prosecutor would bring the case, he said. >> others are criticized him for that saying that others have been penalized. obviously in abc's polling and other places hillary clinton has a very difficult time proving to the american people that she's honest and trustworthy and i don't think that her actions with her server and the way they treated e-mail imperiling everybody's national security helped that veracity challenge that she has. >> that's all we have time for. kellyanne, thanks for coming in. >> thank you, kellyanne. abc's jon karl is going join us now from washington. you heard from kellyanne and we're hearing from donald trump. how severe is this divide in the gop, jon, and where do we go from here? >> that was stunning. kellyanne conway just went asked directly by george whether or not donald trump thinks that
speaker out of the house, paul ryan, should still be the speaker of the house next year wouldn't answer. i mean that is an extraordinary sign that we are truly at war. donald trump not just against hillary clinton, but against some of the most prominent and respected members in his own party. and republicans are now seeing a situation where base voters supporting trump are angry at them, and also the moderate swing voters who are upset tie this to trump. it's a lose-lose situation for republicans. >> how does the clinton campaign deal with an unshackled trump, his words, unshackled trump? are there concerns there? >> i've been talking to senior people in the clinton campaign about this. they say for the next four weeks they are preparing for a scorched earth strategy coming from donald trump. they think that the next four weeks of this campaign will look like the first 30 minutes of that debate with donald trump throwing absolutely everything personal, bringing up attacks
and bringing up bill clinton's past. that's a real challenge for them because it's harder to get a positive message out fur what hillary clinton stands for. >> 27 days to go. all right, jon, thank you. we move on and get the latest on that deadly plane crash in connecticut. one passenger killed when the flight went up in flames. now the fbi is investigating. abc's linzie janis is here. linzie, fbi involved because of some evidence that this may not have been an accident. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right. when that plane came barreling out of the sky, most assumed it was an accident. but federal investigators are now looking into whether the person flying it may have crashed it on purpose. this morning, the fbi investigating whether this plane crash -- >> looks like we've got a fully involved aircraft on fire on main street. >> reporter: -- was intentional. the pilot who survived, telling authorities the twin engine crash was not an accident. the plane taking off from an airport in hartford, connecticut, with a student pilot, and instructor reportedly on board. just before 4:00 p.m. tuesday, the aircraft striking utility poles.
>> the fact that this wasn't even more catastrophic is nothing short of a miracle. >> reporter: then cartwheeling down main street narrowly missing a van carrying her mother and children before bursting into flames. >> three poles, when it hit the last one it just boom. >> reporter: a bystander posting this dramatic video tweeting the plane came inches from our office, went right by the window. the chief of police saying he asked the fbi to investigate because the plane went down near a pratt & whitney factory, describing it as critical infrastructure. the company, a global manufacturer of jet engines for commercial, military and general aviation. that pilot instructor was rushed to the hospital and is reportedly being treated for burns. again, his student pilot did not survive, and that mother in the minivan so shaken she said she
couldn't speak. authorities say it is a miracle no one on the ground was hurt. michael. >> i'm glad no one on the ground was hurt. thank you very much for that. now the southeast is still feeling the effects of hurricane matthew this morning. take a look at this flooding in north carolina. the water is not going anywhere forcing thousands of people from their homes, and phillip mena is there in north carolina. good morning, phillip. >> reporter: michael, good morning, the flooding in this region is catastrophic and this is the epicenter. this senior citizen home evacuated. you can see just how deep the water is now. that red car is submerged. many people living here, they're searching higher ground while they still can. overnight rescuers in north carolina hard at work still pulling stranded residents from their flooded homes. >> this is the worst that we've ever had. >> reporter: 75 miles from the coast, the town of lumberton underwater. >> we have nothing, no clothes, no shoes, no nothing. by grand kids lost everything. >> one, two, three. >> reporter: more than 2,000 residents there rescued.
18 people in north carolina now dead. >> too many people have died. and we don't want any more to die. >> reporter: the u.s. death toll from hurricane matthew up to at least 36. hundreds of thousands still without power. tuesday afternoon, national guard troops racing to repair a crucial dam in moore county, a growing hole about the size of a fire truck threatening even more destruction and more lives. >> they're risking their life to get this thing done and to me those are superheroes. >> reporter: this as multiple rivers in the state continue do swell to record levels. this street aligned with businesses is now part of the lumber river in record flood stage for days. michael. >> all right, thank you, phillip. ginger, you have more on the flooding. >> right, because he just said it. record flood stage for days and it will keep going for days so we have more of the images from lumberton, north carolina, which
we've been showing you but that's not the only river we have to showcase here as far as who is being affected. flood warnings stretch from south carolina through southeastern virginia, and you can see a couple of those rivers we wanted to highlight. the neuse river is crested at record already, staying up there and staying at major flood stage all the way through sunday. so this is not going to be over for some time. a quick check of hurricane nicole, which is a category 2 hits bermuda tomorrow or affects them. we'll come back with more. robin? >> we appreciate that. now to a happy reunion, that 4-year-old girl missing for days, she's now back in her family's arms safe after being kidnapped and found more than 800 miles away. abc's steve osunsami has that story for us. >> oh, you're beautiful. >> reporter: cameras were there and rolling the moment authorities reunited 4-year-old rebecca lewis with her family in florida. >> thank you for bringing me home. >> reporter: she had been
missing since saturday until police found her more than 800 miles away at baptist memorial hospital in memphis. a young woman at the hospital saw the girl walking hand in hand with her alleged abductor and recognized her from amber alerts on facebook. >> my dad looked at me and i showed my phone and said she's wearing the same outfit and immediately they took that ride and we went straight to security. >> reporter: police surrounded the silver car in the parking lot and rescued the 4-year-old uninjured. >> i want to say thank you to you because without you, i don't know when this would end. >> reporter: 31-year-old west wild hogs who changed his name to that legally is in police custody this morning. police say that the longtime family friend was spotted with the girl in several surveillance videos including this one from a nashville gas station around 2:00 a.m. monday morning. tennessee authorities are now under fire for waiting until later that day to issue an amber alert. >> we did receive a phone call from his agency asking us to issue an amber alert.
we asked, is the individual she is with a danger? does he have any critical history? again, the agency said no. >> reporter: authorities did issue a police alert to be on the lookout. there are just so many of these cases where the victims are never found, or their cases are ignored which makes this reunion all the more remarkable. hogs has a court appearance in tennessee this morning. robin. >> all right, steve, thank you very much. a happy ending there and a happy ending last night for the cubs. if you are a chicago fan, you really are happy this morning, because it did not look good for chicago cubs fans last night. they were down going into the ninth inning, and then they came alive. breaking the curse or closer to breaking the curse that has been on them for 108 years and scored four runs in the ninth for an epic comeback to win 6-5 and eliminate the giants from the playoffs, and they now advance to the championship series and play either the dodgers or nationals and they are one step closer to breaking that curse that everybody is talking about.
>> the curse of the billy goat. >> i'm tired -- i'm sure they are tired of hearing about it. one cubs player said after the game we never quit and we aren't stopping now. >> clutch last night. >> i'm sure that's exactly what their fans wanted to see. that's what they wanted to hear. they're not done yet. >> ginger, a new fire in california. >> yeah. this one in elizabeth lake, california. the video here, area of our nation that is so, so dry and could so use some of this rain i'm about to tell you about but the fire watches are up. the wind advisories, especially for northern california, parts of oregon and california or excuse me, washington state, look for that. more than 12 inches of rain possible as we go through the next several days and, again, some of the wind gusts could top 70 or even 100 miles per hour in some of the mountain passes. the chilly cities now brought to you by benefiber.

didn't want to leave. also tim tebow to the rescue again. we're going to tell you why the football star turned baseball player is getting so much praise for what he did after a game when he helped one fan in a major way. that's coming up. >> tim tebow is the man when it comes to that. we begin with more trouble for comedian, jim carrey. the actor face a new lawsuit after his former girlfriend died from an overdose. abc's linsey davis is here and linsey, the woman's mother is now blaming carrey. >> that's right, robin. in a wrongful death lawsuit, the mother of carrey's ex-girlfriend accuses him of yet another role only acting as if he were a mourning boyfriend, a grieving good guy when she says he was really the one who caused her daughter to go into a tailspin and then supplied her with the ill league drugs she took to kill herself. >> reporter: brigid compesweetm
mother of cathriona white has filed a of cathriona white has filed a lawsuit against him blaming him for her 2015 suicide. sweetman alleges carrey gave white three sexually transmitted diseases without warning her, lied to her about it and then dumped her out of concern for his own image. in a statement sweetman says, as a family, we want the world to know the truth about who jim carrey really is. carrey's attorney, martin singer, responded, it is understandable that a mother who has lost a daughter will look for someone to blame but in directing her grief and rage at jim carrey and joining this ridiculous lawyer's attempt to capitalize on cathriona's suicide mrs. sweetman is heading down the same dark path as kathd -- cathriona's green-card husband, mark burton. her estrange husband also filed a lawsuit against the actor accusing carrey of giving white sexually transmitted diseases while concealing his diagnosis and carrey responded saying i will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman i loved.
both burton and sweetman's lawsuits claim carrey obtained prescriptions under the false name of arthur king and provided them to white leading to her september 2015 suicide. white's body was found in her los angeles home surrounded by four prescription medications, none of them in her name. carrey's ex was an irish makeup artist who allegedly suffered a long battle with depression. after their breakup in court to wants where her mother says, one of the stds carrey gave her can leave a woman unable to have children. he was also a pallbearer at her funeral. george? the latest in kim kardashian in seclusion but her sister broke the family silence saying she's not doing well and calling it a wake-up call for the whole clan. abc's mara shchiavocampo is her with more. good morning, mara. >> we have new information about the investigation this morning. abc news confirming a passer-by found a diamond cross pendant on the street near the hotel that's believed to belong to kardashian and presumably was dropped by the thieves and that it contains a lot of dna evidence.
this as kardashian is now filed a lawsuit related to the case. >> reporter: this morning, khloe kardashian speaking out for the first time about her sister, kim's, terrified armed robbery. >> i mean, she's not doing that well. i mean, it's incredibly traumatic what happened to her. >> reporter: khloe telling ellen degeneres tuesday that the world famous reality tv star is having to re-think herov oversharing o social media. >> i think it's just a wake-up call to make a lot of life adjustments. >> you cannot share as much. >> in that aspect and just make sure we're protected as well as possible. >> kylie is snapchatting and not concerned about our location being known. >> reporter: the kardashian clan's e! show indefinitely on hold after the october 2nd robbery. >> nothing will really prepare you for this. >> reporter: officials say kim kardashian was robbed by five armed gunmen in paris. fleeing with more than $10 million worth of jewelry. kardashian hasn't spoken since the robbery.
but tuesday she filed a federal lawsuit against the website mediatakeout.com for three posts which she alleges claimed without any factual support whatsoever that kardashian faked the robbery. the lawsuit adding that the post caused kardashian shame, mortification, hurt feelings, embarrassment and humiliation. but now radar online posting a video they say was shot immediately after the crime that exposes holes in her story. showing kim calmly video chatting on the couch. no visible forced entry to the door or marks on kardashian's wrists from being tied up. >> the robbery has a great deal of mystery. i mean it's, you know, made for tv, a spectacle. >> reporter: now, french police won't claim the authenticity of the radar online video and kardashian herself did not respond to our requests for comment. we also reached out to media takeout for a response to that
lawsuit, but did not get one back. george, robin. >> thanks very much. michael, to the big board in a sec. >> coming up, are more trump tapes on the way? the women heading to studio headquarters demanding their release. plus, which teens are really most at risk behind the wheel, george? >> i guess we'll find out. >> i guess we'll find out. ss we'll find out. come on, dad. ( ♪ ) ♪ they tell me i'm wrong ♪ ♪ to want to stand alongside my, my love ♪ ♪ whoa, talkin' 'bout my love ♪ ♪ talkin' 'bout my, my love ♪ you ready, dad? ♪ whoa-ooh ♪ ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh ♪
no one's surprised tender pieces and crunchy bites ♪ whoa-ooh ended up together. that's just what happens when cats call the shots. new friskies tender and crunchy combo. tasty textures cats gotta have. friskies. for cats. by cats. and they lied about it thatfor decades.ls. now they're lying about prop 56. if you don't use tobacco, you don't pay. smokers pay - their fair share of the 3 billion in health care
costs all taxpayers are paying now. and there's one more thing: our kids. every state that's significantly raised tobacco taxes has reduced youth smoking. please. vote yes on 56. if we can save even a few lives, it's worth it. time now for the big board. our team of insiders to weigh in on today's top stories and begin with sunny hostin at the table and, sunny, this pressure is building on mgm and mark burnett. the own "the apprentice" tapes and the behind-the-scenes footage, and now they're being picked by gloria allred, the activity attorney and says there is a compelling public interest in having the tapes released that she says that should trump any confidentiality clauses. is that a strong legal argument? >> i love gloria's passion but the bottom line is that public interest doesn't necessarily trump a legal contract.
a contractual obligation and i got to tell you, she's trying really hard to get those tapes released. she said that she wants a three-judge panel to review whether or not these claimed legal restrictions are really there and are really enforceable. that is really, really great, but it's a little more like legal theater to me. >> we heard there could be a fine or something if these are leaked but there is a go fund me page that said we'll pay the legal fees for anybody who likes these tapes. is that even feasible? >> it's feasible because there is that rumor. it's been reported there is a $5 million penalty if someone release that is tape, but if you then interfere with trump's contract and you fund that go fund me, i think he could unleash his 400 plus attorneys on the people that fund -- you know, he's got this scorch the earth type of litigation strategy so you could actually be putting yourself at play here if you do that. >> presumably if this comes out

saying, a device containing a lithium ion battery with a recall have to use these. these are required. and also about the company's balance sheet, the company's stock fell 8%. $20 billion, poof, gone. long-term, though, samsung is a diverse company and makes appliance, tech components, other smartphones. hopefully that insulates them in the short term, guys. >> but they have to win consumer trust back. at the same time they're in front of the supreme court this week possibly facing damages from apple which could also be a blow. >> yeah, but i will tell you that patent litigation is like a mosquito bite compared to the note debacle. i can imagine their internal pr team, yes, i got the patent wars case. bottom line, no real serious implications for samsung with this one. right now it's about brand damage. i'm telling you no product has ever experienced a pr beat-down of this magnitude and the other android phonemakers are licking their chops. >> i guess they are.

quadruple. of course, not. when you consider the financial benefits of hosting the olympics you want the money infused into the city, and i spoke to the mayor. the infrastructure is mainly in place, overhead would be relatively low in comparison to other cities and good thing financially, i just don't want to be tuck in traffic any longer. >> traffic is pretty bad in l.a. one of the worst cities and, becky, what do you think? 2028, san francisco out there, your city, throw the name in there. >> we've held the super bowl, america's cup, we've got the rugby world cup coming here. super bowl can do it. we can do the olympics too. can we get some public transportation to go with that? >> i'd love to have the olympics come back here. >> you would? >> yeah. >> oh, i would hate it. new york is already so crowded. can you imagine having a bunch of people here for the olympics? i don't want it. i'm from the bronx. i don't want it. no, no. >> george, you can be on the committee. sunny, you're off. thank you, lz, thank you. becky, thank you and sunny, thank you, of course, thank you for coming in. coming up in two minutes, tim tebow's big moment.

what we do is a patented way of compressing and releasing around the tissue so that the bone inside is fixated or stabilized so that it feels like a part of you and becomes a part of you instead of something attached to you. >> that's what's so important. because you want it to be a part you and not just -- that it's an extension. >> absolutely. >> both of you, both of you are changing lives and i know that your intent is to help others but those that you help, randy, inspire you and help you in the end and your company. right? >> can never have a bad day. it's just an awesome thing to do and be a part of. they're the stars of the show but we like to have a piece of that. >> oh, well, you are being very, very, very humble, and you, aimee, the way we saw at the end of the piece, speaking, you have two masters degrees now. one wasn't enough. you have two. you have two very special internships. what is it that you speak to people about? what is your message to them? >> i think compassion was a huge part of my healing. working with organizations like friends of disabled adults and children, seeing little kids who are in wheelchairs when you're helping others you're not focused on yourself. you're not focused on what
you're lacking. it makes you grateful and it makes you pass on that gratitude to others so my -- i strongly recommend that anyone's who is facing struggles, go out and help other people and you would be surprised at how much it actually helps you. >> you make it look easy and i know it hasn't -- i know it hasn't been for you so tell us what has been the most difficult part and what got you through those difficult times? >> you know, we all have those dark nights of the soul. those difficult times when i'm trying to do something and everything is going wrong. i think having friends and family around actually my best friend, corbin, of ten years is in the studio audience today, and has been a tremendous lifesaver throughout this entire experience, my pfamily. my study, the whole community really just banded together and i think the support system is one of the most important things. all you need is love. >> that's true. and have you that in abundance and, randy, you've worked with other, bethany hamilton who we know very well what happened with her with the shark encounter. >> yeah. >> how do these people cross your paths?
>> well, it's a small field. and i've been doing it for a long time. but you get a reputation for focusing on certain things and the interface, the socket part is what we focus on and by design, and we hope we're marching things forward a little bit. >> speaking of marching forward, you are paying it forward. tell us about this nonprofit nature center that you're trying to bring about. >> yeah, so, you know i love the outdoor, and i love being outside, and as soon as i became disabled, and i said, where's the nature center for people like me? and was disappointed to find there were none in my area so my goal after i become a licensed clinical social worker is to combine my counseling with full mind, body, spiritual growth and to focus on the outdoors, community gardening and helping people to just fully immerse themselves in nature. >> and i understand that you fully enjoy bagels. didn't you mention that? >> yes. >> so your mom, your beautiful mom, you said you wanted bagels to go back with you.
